Ok, it's an understatement to say that I'm excited about this Jeep. Runs, stops and drives pretty darned well AND I got it for a very fair/lowish price. I ACTUALLY have a budget to work with, and overall, I'm finding that it's in used, but not abused shape, with a minimum of bubba'd mods, and some fairly well-executed ones. Again the details. V6 198 Oddfire - Verified with block casting number T90-A1 - Verified with block casting number and input gear tooth count (18) D18 small hole single stick Dana 27 front - (4.27 gears) - verified with casting number. (double cardan u-joints, correct?) Dana 44 rear - (4.27 gears)/2 piece axles - verified visually. (19 spline?) I'm taking inventory of the current conditions That I find: Boxed front frame-rails with reinforced front bumper/tow-bar mount. Boxed front frame rail with rudimentary Saginaw mount. I've already driven this rig on the street and wheeled it during a short, but fairly spirited "yard-wheeling" session and honestly, it works great. Obviously I'll want to make this mount a more permanent/solid setup. Looking at AA's manual mount for $55 bucks. Should I be seeing daylight through this bushing mount..haha? Trying to decide what I'm seeing. Is it a bushing failure or a spring wrap failure or both? I feel like if I get a new shackle setup, the spring is still going to knock back-and-forth a bit while being used? Might need new springs, too?
